Vision - mission


We believe that:

  • Low-income people should be able to benefit from valuable insurance services and make informed choices to manage their risks.
  • Increasing access to insurance and creating a better understanding of its value will help reduce vulnerability and poverty amongst low-income people.
  • Creating an insurance culture among low-income men and women will allow them to appreciate the utility of insurance and demand better quality services.


The mission of the Facility is to learn how insurance can optimally benefit low-income households and to share best practices that emerge from the sector.

We will achieve this mission by stimulating innovation, contributing to the development of valuable products, promoting models that reach large volumes of clients and by supporting market education to help low-income people understand the utility of insurance.
